Pork sausage, ground beef and plenty of beans make this chili a hearty meal-starter. I keep the versatile mixture in serving-size containers in my freezer at all times. I can quickly warm up bowls of it on cold—or use it to fix chili dogs, chili tacos and more.
With chops this good, you won’t have to rinse the plates before putting them in the dishwasher. Wine adds delectable flavor, and the meat falls from the bone. This dish is sure to initiate family members into the clean-plate club! —Kristina Wyatt, Catawba, Virginia
The herb rub and sliced onion add loads of flavor to this pork roast. I like to serve it with a side of parslied potatoes and a green salad for a well-rounded dinner.— Shelia Letchworth, Versailles, Missouri
I am originally from North Carolina (where swine is divine) and this recipe for the slow cooker is a family favorite. My husband swears my authentic Carolina ‘cue is the best BBQ he has ever eaten! —Kathryn Ransom Williams, Sparks, NV
I adapted a pork and squash stew recipe, using tomatoes and Southwestern-style seasonings. My husband and sons loved it, and the leftovers were even better the next day! Try it with fresh corn muffins. —Molly Newman, Portland, Oregon
